Traditional vs Modern Home Designs

Many of our clients are excited with the new modern style homes but are concerned with how they will blend into their established traditional neighborhood.  This is a great question and the answer is as varied as our clients tastes.  For one of our projects, we went to the exercise of developing both a traditional and modern design for comparison.

The great part is we were able to use the same basic floor plan for both.  It only took a few hours to develop and present both a modern and traditional exterior elevation for this site.  This was quite a revelation to us (and our clients) as it was very helpful to be able to quickly and inexpensively see how the different styles would look.  While both of these homes will have a very different character. The changes are really only skin deep.
